OMGHi2U Since we're doing cat threads, 2012 Boss meow2: Not just another declaw package




Quote:
The car that Mustang fans have been hoping Ford would build for a very, very long time is finally here: the 2012 Boss 302. Dave Pericak, the Mustang chief engineer says it all.

"Boss is a hallowed word around here, and we couldn't put that name on a new Mustang until we were sure everything was in place to make this car a worthy successor. We were either going to do it right or not do it at all - no one on the team was going to let Boss become a sticker and wheel package."

Amen, Dave. A true Boss 302 is raw, hardcore and race-inspired, and Ford delivered the goods. The latest special edition Mustang comes with plenty of items that will excite road racing fans - an upgraded clutch, short-throw shifter, adjustable suspension, improved brakes and a more potent version of the 5.0-liter V8 that produces 440 horsepower and 380 lb-ft torque thanks to a new intake and more aggressive camshafts. Ford claims the Boss 302 will be able to break 1.0g and lap a typical road course two seconds faster than the standard Mustang GT. Ford engineers even reportedly benchmarked the BMW M3 when developing the Boss 302, aiming to beat the famous Bavarian coupe around Laguna Seca, which they claim to have achieved.

The exterior is inspired by the original 1969 model with either a black or white roof panel, C-stripe, closed fog lamp openings and a more aggressive front splitter and rear spoiler. Available colors are more eye-catching than the standard choices and include Competition Orange, Performance White, Kona Blue Metallic, Yellow Blaze Tri-Coat Metallic and Race Red.

2010 Boss 302 owners will enjoy a more aural experience from the cockpit thanks to eleven pounds of sound-deadening material removed from the car. The interior also gets a dark metallic finish for the instrument panel, gauge cluster and door panel trim, Alcantara-covered steering wheel and an optional package with Recaro high performance seats.

Finally, Ford is also planning to release a limited number of Boss 302 Laguna Seca models (right) that offer more body stiffness, a stronger chassis and an aero package lifted straight from the Ford Racing Boss 302R.

We're attending the 2010 Boss 302's live unveiling at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and will have the first live pictures of the car straight from the famous corkscrew for you soon.
Highlights:
Less sound deadening
Alcantara steering wheel
Optional Recaros
Stiffer chassis
Revised suspension

440hp
New cams/exhaust/intake
7500rpm redline
Forged pistons
Uprated rods

Oil cooler
New oil pan to sustain higher g loads

Holy do ****ing want.

Boss 302R track only version will cost $79k. No pricing announced on Boss 302 street version. I'm guessing 40's.

The Mustang BOSS 302R is for use exclusively on the race track and will be priced from $79,000.

For this money, buyers will get a 5.0-liter four-valve V-8 powerplant and a 6-speed manual transmission with a roll cage, race seats, safety harness, data acquisition and race dampers and springs, plus a Brembo brake and tire package.

Available through Ford dealers, a total of 50 BOSS 302R Mustangs will be built, with first deliveries expected to start in the third quarter of 2010.
How much is that crap worth from the factory?

Hehe, I was about to say.. First Cadillac puts recaros and now ford. Next thing you know, Kia will have recaros and we will still be driving on our fat ass seats

On a side note, I don't like Ford but I would still love to ride that sexy bitch. Can't wait to see so driving impressions since it sound like it will rip around a track.

Fixed that for 'ya.
OMG think of how many levels of Impreza there are!
1. Regular
2. WRX
3. 2.5 GT
4. STI


The MSRP goes like this:
V6 $22,145
GT $29,645
GT500 $48,645

For the Boss 302 to fit in there, it'd have to be in the low $40k range. Not too bad considering what you get. I'm betting on $39k MSRP. Just a couple grand more than a GT premium 'vert.

i know i'm going to get flack but regardless of the improved engine/ suspension components, that looks like a redneck got a hold of it. that looks horrible. the original boss looked good, this does not. the 2011 mustang refresh looks good, but this iteration = : pukesmiley.gif :
